George Thomas "Tom" Seaver (born November 17, 1944), nicknamed "Tom Terrific" and "The Franchise", is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He pitched from 1967-1986 for four different teams in his career, but is noted primarily for his time with the New York Mets. During a 20-year career, Seaver compiled 311 wins, 3,640 strikeouts, 61 shutouts and a 2.86 earned run average. In 1992, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the highest percentage ever recorded (98.84%), and has the only plaque at Cooperstown wearing a New York Mets hat. As of 2010, Tom Seaver and Gil Hodges (played for the Mets in 1962-63) are the only Met players to have their jersey numbers retired by the team (Gil Hodges' number was retired as a manager even though he also played for the Mets).He won the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 1967, and three NL Cy Young Awards as the league's best pitcher. Seaver is the Mets' all-time leader in wins, and is considered by many baseball experts as one of the best starting pitchers in the history of baseball.

#Quote
1It was within my grasp. I don't think I've ever had a more disappointing moment in baseball. [on how he felt after his bid for a perfect game had been broken up]
2It takes 20 victories for people to recognize you as a great pitcher.
3I don't like 10:30 AM starting times. I'm not fully awake until the fifth or sixth inning. [after starting and winning the first game of a doubleheader on July 4, 1969 that started at 10:30 AM]
4If you don't think baseball is a big deal, don't do it. But if you do, do it right.
5I would like to be a great artist. I would quit pitching if I could paint like Monet or Rousseau. But I can't. What I can do is pitch, and I can do that very well.
6In baseball, my theory is to strive for consistency, not to worry about the numbers. If you dwell on statistics you get shortsighted; if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.
7To an early '70s fan who noted his accomplishments: "Yeah, but you forgot one thing: I'm the only pitcher in the history of the Mets who's lost a ball game in the World Series."
8My job isn't to strike guys out, it's to get them out - sometimes by striking them out.
9That was nice, but it's only the first step. I want to pitch on a Mets pennant winner and I want to pitch the first game in the World Series. I want to change things around here. The Mets have been a joke long enough. It's time to start winning, to change the attitude, to move on to better things. I don't want the Mets to be laughed at anymore. [commenting on being selected to the All-Star team in 1967]
10I drink beer, I swear, but I keep my hair short, so I guess that makes me an All-American boy.
